I booked for a half day experience. I was quite surprised when the experience was over after just over two hours. That was part was disappointing as I felt short-changed. When my glass work arrived a few weeks later by post, the base of my blown glass bowl was terribly crooked. That was fixed by the tutor, not me. I feel it should have been corrected, or at least an attempt to correct it should have been made. The badly fitted base has ruined the appearance of the bowl and I am ashamed of it, not proud of it as I had hoped. This in my view was unacceptable and completely out of my control. That, at least, should have been better. Otherwise the glassblowing experience was okay.

I did the half day taster workshop which was a great introduction to the glass shop set up and glass blowing. The facilitator was knowledgable, friendly and really hospitable. I would recommend this to anyone that is curious about glass and the glassware making process. There’s even an inspiring gallery of glass sculptures you can visit as well as the rest of the glass blowing quarter you can visit. Also free parking. Fantastic +++++
